bau 103 presents works of Carla Goldberg and Lisa Zukowski, and a solo exhibit featuring Charles McGill, to run through Aug. 4.
Layers and Lines, the work of Goldberg and Zukowski, will be shown in Gallery One. Memories are never just a straight line, but rather vectored in layers where past and present marry. For both artists, their memories and connectedness to the past are expressed in their artwork as a physical manifestation of time.
Goldberg’s works are ever rooted in childhood memory. Her new series of drawings based on the memory of sea foam on the edge of a beach reminds her of summer retreats with her father’s family on the Jersey shore and her grandparents’ treks to the California coastline. For Zukowski, the act of cutting up old clothing and then joining these pieces is about more than just process. Her layered, pieced and painted works literally reconnect the threads of the past.
In the Beacon Room, Charles McGill presents the Solo Exhibition Skinned. The majority of his work over the past 10 to 12 years falls under what the artist refers to as The Artifacts from the Former Black Militant Golf and Country Club, a conceptually-based body of work that incorporates golf objects into statements that explore race, politics, sex and class. In this work he incorporates found object, graphic design, performance, essay, photography, appropriation, digital arts and collage, creating an array of golf and race-related objects infused with satire and socio-political digs.
